Didn't end up wearing it as my dress got lost in a hurricane, but had a great experience at store.
Fit nicely.

Skin-tight sheath dress. Runs true to size but will feel tight.
This is a stunning dress that emphasizes an hourglass figure. I recommend wearing spanx underneath to help with that. I received compliments all night. It was so comfortable I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night. Can be made edgy or classic depending on your choice of accessories.

Party Dress
Beautiful little black dress. This dress is very fitted, I highly recommend spanks or control top stockings. The fold-over top of the dress can be annoying but looks great in pictures. I paired with red heels. I am very curvy and have a booty so I probably won't rent this dress again but probably great for other body types.

Not your average LBD. Very flattering and sexy but classy at the same time. My boyfriend loved this dress and proposed to me in it!

Fashionable
This is a beautiful dress, perfect for a date night. It was slightly on the small side and is very unforgiving as it is tight and the fabric doesn't have much structure to it. I don't even think you could wear spanx without it showing. The top is a little annoying because if you want to wear a strapless bra with it is cut in a way that it is hard to conceal the under armpit view of the straps unless you are pulling up your dress all night. I just went with a colorful bra and let it show. Overall I felt very modern and high fashion. A nice dress and glad I rented it for a night but not one I would want to buy.

Didn't end up wearing -- arm holes were huge!
While this was a cute dress, the arm holes were huge and showed a ton of side boob/my bra in a way that was more trashy than at all sexy. It just didn't work.

Total Standout
This dress was great for a company holiday party! It was a more formal cocktail party, so it was tricky to find something that stood out without feeling over-the-top. The dress fits very tight but it is a thick material that sucks you in in all the right places. The off-the-shoulder neckline makes it sexy while remaining modest. I have shorter legs so the hemline hit a bit more towards the knee than on the model but that was a plus for me. This is a great LBD that was an absolute head turner!

Not for me
I really wanted to like this one! I just couldn't get it to fit right - the top was big, the bottom was tight, it was an odd length, and the scuba type material wasn't my thing. Have to say this one looks better online - not a fan, didn't wear at all.

My first RTR experience was great! Sad to shop this beauty off tomorrow. I want to keep it forever!!
Fit was true to size. There's a lot of give, and I could've easily worn the 0 or the 2, but the 0 fit better. Both sizes did scrunch up at the end of the zipper above my butt, but I think that might just be my body type- tiny waist, big donk. Highly recommend!

I went one size up. Usually a 0 and the 2 fit perfect. Hugs your body and the material sucks you in.
Only con is the arm holes are large so you have to be mindful when choosing undergarments!

Awkward fit but cute idea
The fit around the neckline was strange - it wouldn't sit across the shoulders as well as the model in the photos, and it gaped around the arm holes.

I rented this dress for a family event but didn't wear it because it was a bit shorter than I had expected - it looked fantastic when I tried it on and would be great for a party or night out maybe

WOW!!!!!
I wore this dress to a wedding, all I have to say is wow! The dress fit amazing, it was sexy and classy. I received compliments all night. The length was perfect on my petite frame, It hit right above the knee and the panels on the side make your waist tiny! The only drawback was dancing could be difficult at times due to it being off the shoulder, they would ride up a little. I wish I could buy this dress. Loved it!!

I'm a huge sucker for an off the shoulder dress.
Loved this dress! I'm usually a size 6 and had to wear an 8 so I'd recommend ordering up. Fit like a glove and I was comfortable the entire night!

A Head Turner!
First, let me say, RTR's pick-up at store service is the best! I received my order a day before my actual rental agreement (received 9/22, ordered for 9/23). The ladies in the Flatiron store were great. Tried on both dresses and decided to take the 2 b/c the material has a bit of stretch in it (and the 4 gapped under my arms). Definitely was a hit at the black tie wedding I attended and would probably purchase this dress if it ever went on clearance (hint, hint RTR). I recommend sizing down instead of up if you're between sizes, like I am.

Loved the fit and style
It is very figure flattering, I ordered up one size for comfort and it fit like a glove. I had to wear a nu bra to prevent the lines from showing under the arms. It would be difficult to wear to a wedding or event where you need to move your arms a lot. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and it was perfect. Would definitely recommend it!

Sexy Little Black Dress!
Sexy black dress that works for tall girls! Not the most comfortable in the upper arms (constricting with the neck line), but that neck line is very sexy. Lots of stretch, great dress!

get the red one
it's a good dress, i got the red one for comparison and it's better. something about the shiny parts of the black dress that makes it look slightly less classy. both are great though so you can't go wrong.

Elegant, flattering and comfortable!
I usually wear a size 2 or 4. The only reason I chose to wear the four this time was that it was a tad bit snug for my taste. I would definitely recommend this for a cocktail party. I felt like it was very flattering while being extremely comfortable to move around in. Perfect dress for statement jewelry, too!

Beautiful, long enough for a formal gala; eye catching form, makes you stand up straight and sucks in your tummy; It was very slimming, but it helps to be in shape. People stopped me about my dress all night! I felt super sexy and chic.

tight and sassy!
The dress is awesome. the material feels almost like a wetsuit...and is very fitted, but has some stretch to it. Wore it to a charity event...didn't have to lift my arms to dance or anything so I really liked how it hugged my shoulders. Appropriate length....the arm wholes could have been a little smaller, as my bra tended to peak out, but it wasn't horrible. Would rent it again :)

This dress fit beautifully, the fabric was thick but stretchy and very forgiving. The only downside to the dress was it was hard to move my arms to dance. Overall, this dress was beautiful and I would definitely rent it again

Not for dancing, but perfect for dinner
As others have mentioned, the sleeves aren't the best if you want to boogie. However, I rented this for an awards banquet and it was perfect for mingling and eating. The fabric is clingy, but thick (I didn't wear a bra). Great LBD for any occasion.

Satin side panels and shoulder baring top make for chic cocktail!
I adore this dress and cut. I've already rented and wore this same dress in red. I'm incredibly broad shouldered and felt comfortable on both size 6 and 8 but opted for extra wiggle room (as my event required long periods of sitting) and length that the 8 provided. It's classic, curve hugging, glamorous and my go to order. A must have!!!
